the big news of the week. on tuesday night barack obama was once again elected president of the united states. but this year's party in chicago had nothing on 2008. back then more than a quarter million people crowded into grant park. mother nature even seemed sure of the outcome offering up an unbelievably warm 60 degree chicago night and the place was crowded with more black vips than the ethnic music festival. this year was more modest. a single podium draped with a touch of bunting, a far more typical cold, gray november day greeted the just about 10,000 supporters who found their way into chicago's unremarkable mckorm make place convention center. there was hugging, dancing, but the tears were more from relieve than inspired awe. be careful because if you decode this election night on the optics alone, you will believe them to be more different than they really are. despite a two-year halt in legislative accomplishments brought on by a recalcitrant republican party, an anemic economy, and a bruising campaign that lacked the historical fervor of the first, president obama nonethele

.i.a. director general david petraeus is out tonight. just three days after president obama won re-election. petraeus says the reason isen extramarital affair. this is one of those stories that virtually no one saw coming. we begin with ed henry. >> reporter: officials were stunned when general petraeus came to the president and told him that he wanted to step down. he has had a long distinguished military record of decades, architect of the surge in iraq. you will remember. in 2007 under president bush. came back and became the commander on the ground in afghanistan against president obama. the general has come under fire for the c.i.a. role in benghazi terror attack, people close to him tonight insist the resignation had nothing to do with the ips dept. this is a personal failing that he talked about today in a statement saying after being married for over 37 years i showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. such behavior is unacceptable as a husband and leader of an organization such as ours. this afternoon, the president graciously accepted my resignation. ov
to the attention of the head of national intelligence on tuesday at 5:00 on election day? why did it not come to the white house's attention until the next day, wednesday? >> bob, before i turn to you, paula broadwell, she writes a book called "all in." this is the biography of david petraeus. and you know, as part of promoting that book she did some interviews including on "the daily show" that talked about how they struck up this relationship, biographer and subject and her trips to afghanistan. let's watch a portion of that. >> to get to know him he wanted to run with you. so you ran together. >> this is a typical mechanism he uses to get to know young people. he's done it throughout his life. so it was an opportunity for me to interview him on a run. and i think it was -- i thought i'd test him, but he was going to test me. and it ended up being kind of a test for both of us and so we both ran pretty quickly. but that was the foundation of our -- [ laughter ] -- relationship. when i was in kabul we would do a lot of interviews on runs. for him it was a good distraction from the war. of co
the lessons of that loss isn't good either. at his core this election was about fairness, giving, everyone a fair shot. congressman ryan doesn't -- he doesn't get it. >> was this a referendum on your budget plan, do you think? >> i don't think we lost it on those budget issues. i think people, especially on medicare, we clearly didn't lose it on those issues. >> they did lose on those issues. budget, taxes, medicare. that's what this election was all about. during the campaign paul ryan himself said so. >> i bet they'll talk about medicare. i'm excited about this debate. we want this debate. we need this debate and we're going to win this debate about medicare. >> we are offering big ideas. we are offering real solutions, real reforms for a real recovery. >> this is a debate we want to have. this is a debate we need to have. and this is a debate we're going to win. >> the country did have the debate and republicans lost in every battleground except one. today we saw what losing looks like. gop senate majority leader mitch mcconnell sat down with the three new republicans in the senate. the
had been nominated that she would not be elected? there would not be a race. she did not want -- she had had it with trying to adapt to this new reality that involved the tea party people. so the question is, is that, which is going to dominate -- fear or opportunity? >> about 15 minutes or so left in this discussion. you can see this in its entirety at the c-span video library. now the latest on the hurricane seen the hurricane response with craig fugate, and charley and nancy. you can also hear this on c- span3. >> update on the response to hurricane sandy. >> afternoon, everybody. i will be brief because i figure you got more questions. some of the highlights from the last couple of days. as of this morning, around 6:00 a.m., and we will have numbers later this afternoon be looked at you, but 317,000 folks have registered in the three states for individual assistance. and a total of -- is three had a 20 million for the three states. the yesterday northeaster had impacts appeared in many cases precautionary measures were taken to shut down operations. there was concern about that,
of this are the politics of a presidential election. at the end of the day, the balance of power remains almost exactly the same. does the fact the president won an election make his hand any stronger? does it make it the same? does the idea he's not running for office again improve his power or make him weaker? i don't really know the answer to that. i do remember president bush saying he had a mandate, and watching that mandate fizzle as he tried to do social security reform. i'm not sure there's been any progress at all as a result of this election, maria. i'm not hearing it yet in the rhetoric. >> you have to wonder what the quid pro quo is. if he's going to draw that line in the sand that he's going to veto any legislation on the upper end tax cut, there has to be some quid pro quo at some point. dan, what do you think happens? obviously wall street didn't like what it heard. >> clearly not. the reaction was probably more visceral than a lot of people anticipated, particularly as it rallied on election day and into the election, even though it was clear obama had the advantage. i think it's a lot
debate. >> the president was committed -- elected on the basis that he was not romney and romney was a poopy head. >> they're going to defend a bunch of millionaires? >> i was long last week as was virtually every major republican analyst. >> bounce with me. come on, bounce with me a little bit. come on. ♪ >>> bounce with me, indeed. it's the first week after the election, and the big story was supposed to be the looming fiscal cliff. but there's nothing like a high profile sex scandal to distract washington. with headlines dominated today by the abrupt resignation of cia director david petraeus over an extramarital affair. some lawmakers are now calling for an inquiry. we're now learning that high-level officials at the fbi and the justice department were notified in late summer that fbi agents had uncovered the affair that led to petraeus' downfall. it all started in early june when a florida woman named jill kelley pictures here with her husband, petraeus, and his wife, alerted agents to e-mails she described as e-mails. they told kelley, a petraeus family friend, to stop so
people don't want to see is a focus on the next election instead of a focus on them. and i don't have another election. and, you know, michele and i were talking last night about, you know, what an incredible honor and privilege it is to be put in this position. and there are people all across this country, millions of folks who worked so hard to help us get elected but there are also millions of people who may not have voted for us but are counting on us. and, you know, we take that responsibility very seriously. i take that responsibility very seriously. and i hope and intend to be an even better president in the second term than i was in the first. >> jonathan carl? >> thank you, mr. president. senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham said today they want watergate-style hearings on the attack in benghazi and if you nominate susan rice as secretary of state they will do everything to block the nomination and senator graham said he doesn't trust her after benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter you from making a nomination like that? >> at th
election iran fires at a drone. why are we only finding out about this now? >> steve: weekend after hurricane sandy left thousands homeless . we are looking at where the homeless people are going . a massive tent city and we are there live on the friday bitterly cold morning. >> brian: they are opening up a place for them. outraged over the president doing first order of business should be to stick a fork in it. >> steve: stick a fork in it. >> brian: "fox and friends" starpts right now. >> steve: the reason i was struggling in a scramble. tomorrow is the marine's birthday and. and we have jiie whit lock pins. i will wear mine in the entire program. >> most people don't have the prive ledge of watching you get dressed. >> steve: what do you mean. >> putting things on. >> steve: nice ally. >> great to be back in the land of the light. >> brian: why are you taunting me? it is so bad on long island they are asking the defense department to take over. that's how bad the power authority is. when i say disaster, i am understating it. >> steve: you are. >> brian: and confusion . >> steve:
. now that the elections are over, will washington do anything or will the town always on break continue to object structure, politicize and, of course, our favorite phrase kick that can down the road? the new washington is basically the same z the one before the election. the president is still obama, the senate is still solidly democratic and the house is republican, albeit by a small erma jort. three people in charge had this to say after the election. >> tonight you voted for action, not politics as usual. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans but americans. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's better to work together. everything doesn't have to be a fight. >> i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together. >> because the american people expect us to find common ground, we're willing to accept additional revenues via tax reform. >> legislation is the art of compromising and consensus building. >> despite all the frustrations of washington, i'
more involvement, but if they don't participate in the off year elections, the impact of the demographic changes i was going to be pushed a little bit further down the road and it would necessarily need to be. it could be right now or could be two years from now or four years from now. it's always been pushed a little bit further because of the lack of participation in off year elections. >> i don't see any additional hands. >> i'm wondering if you have any thoughts on the flood of money into the campaigns this year and where will the billionaires take your dollars because the super pac impact hasn't been quite what they expected? >> i saw somebody making a snide remark on the website a couple days ago about all the interested in what karl rove tells his donors after the election is over, after collecting all of that money. what is it that we've gotten? clearly there are two aspects of that. first of all, believe me when the final numbers are in, president obama and his sidekick not unilaterally define. so this is not a case where the billionaires -- the billionaires w
the election is behind us, and it's time to confront the fiscal cliff, or as we at "the cycle" call it until we invent poetic phrasing, the gradual fiscal slope. whatever you want to call it, it's staring you in the face. two hours ago the president flanked by middle class taxpayers said this in the white house east room. >> the american people voted for action, not politics as usual. our job now is to get the majority of congress to reflect the will of the american people. what the american people are looking for is cooperation. they're looking for consensus. they're looking for common sense. most of all, they want action. >> the president has invited congressional leaders to the white house next week to start negotiations. he's made it clear that the election is a message that the people won't compromise. >> i intend to work with both parties to do more. i'm not wedded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. but, as i've said before, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. if we're serious about reduc
that although our members are great here, two of our colleagues have gone on to the senate. senator elect tammy baldwin [applause] senator elect mazie hirono. only the second woman of color to serve in the senate. that is very exciting. unfortunately we do not have kathy hochul this next congress, but the future is soon coming upon -- we know they will be making a great public contribution. so here we are. we are still finishing up some of our campaigns. we are very proud of the success -- as you see here today. why is it important for us to make this statement of the strength of women in the congress of the united states? the house democratic women? because this is where the hopes and dreams of american families are. they may not know that, they may not know one party from the next and the rest, but we now that without roza deluaro we would not have the lilly ledbetter paycheck fairness act. without gwen moore would not have the violence against women act put forth the way it is. [applause] working so hard with other members of our caucus, to protect women in the military. [applause] we are so
time to get into it, comes one day before president obama holds his first press conference after his re-election. joining me now is jonathan allen. >> the other john allen. >> the other john allen. all we're missing now is for someone to wake up from a coma in a hospital and reveal they were the rightful commander of the troops. i mean the thing, this has spiraled and seemingly almost out of control. the reality, of course, is that there are 68,000 troops in afghanistan, we have military conflict in the middle east, what does this say and do to the leadership on the defense side? >> look, unless you believe that these are the only men that could carry out these jobs well, then the defense infrastructure and the national security infrastructure of the united states should be relatively unaffected by this. there should be people that can come into those jobs and do those jobs well. if you believe these are the only men that can do those jobs to protect our country in the case of david petraeus, having him resign from the cia would have been a terrible thing and the president should have stopped hi
